Ingredients:

  • low-cal spray oil
  • 600g lean beef sirloin, cut into chunks
  • 1 tbsp green Thai curry paste
  • 1 stick lemongrass, thinly sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 1 tsp nam pla (fish sauce)
  • 100ml reduced-fat coconut milk
  • 60mg mangetout, trimmed
  • 60g thin green beans, trimmed
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
  • 240g basmati rice (raw weight)

Method:

 

Cook the rice according to the instructions on the packet.

Meanwhile, lightly spray a wok or deep-frying pan with low-cal spray oil. Place over a medium heat and add the beef. Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until sealed.

Stir in the curry paste and cook for 1 minute. Add the lemongrass, garlic and lime leaves and stir-fry for 1 minute.

Add the nam pla, coconut milk, mangetout and green beans. Simmer gently for 10 minutes, until the beef is cooked through and the vegetables are just tender but still a little crisp.

Stir in the lime juice and coriander and serve with boiled rice.
